Thanks to you all for your support. I'm on antibiotics now so I hope I'll get better soon. Now I just have the sinus headache...yuck...I asked the doc for something for the head pain (its quite severe) and he said "that's what the antibiotics are for...the pain will go away in a few days."
Come on...a few days..so I get to suffer for a few days. Its sad to be labeled "mentally ill" and have docs afraid that you're a drug abuser as well...I can just see his notes..."Pt is bi-polar and is exhibiting drug seeking behavior..." God forbid I have any pain that needs to be treated...I'm guess I'm just out of luck. Fortunately ice packs alternating with a heating pad helps some. It just means I have to stay in the house for 2 or 3 days..Sorry to rant but it just made me feel insignificant, like my pain wasn't important.
Sounds to be that perhas your immune system was down and you got sick with some sinus infection. Since your body is fighting this infection, it is making you tired from trying to help fight off that sinus infection. When most of us don't feel well, many of us feel more sad and down.
You do probably need rest and yes a ice pack may help a head ache. And also we've found what's great for sinus relief is simple head massage by a friend, the area between the head and the upper neck. I hope you will soon feel much better.
